Ray from Casa Grande, Az writes
I live where there are a lot of lizards and birds. I have ants I can't get rid of. They live around the bases of trees and cacti, as well as in the ground. If I'm careful when applying Taurus SC, will it be safe for the birds and lizards? I would only use it where the ants are nesting, and not use it as a broadcast spray.
Taurus SC Termiticide should not harm lizards. It could kill the insects they are feeding on, thus making them go somewhere else for food. Taurus is a great product for ant control but it can only be used on or within one foot of a structure. You cannot use Taurus out in the lawn as this type of treatment is prohibited by the Taurus product label. We do have a wide variety of ant bait granules and insecticides that you can use out in the lawn to control ants. You can find these products by going to our Ant Control Page.
